$50 fine and a stern reprimand seems appropriate. Let's hope they do this expeditiously so that tax revenue isn't wasted on something so trivial.

Lets hope the courts do the right thing and impose jail time. Anyone who is capable of such atrocities should not be free to be around animals (human or non-human). It is well documented that animal abuse rarely stops there, that these cretins go on to be abusive to others who are perceived to be weaker. It is time society took these red flags seriously.

"$50 and a stern reprimand?" for duct taping a helpless dog's feet together...and taping her mouth
shut...for what was it? a couple days? And you think this is a "trivial" matter? You've gotta be kidding "USA Rocks".... Animal Abusers should get every bit of what they give!

Animal abuse is not a predictor of human abuse.

The way I see it is that animal "abuse" is less destructive to society than speeding and running red lights. It is approximately as destructive to society as jay walking and illegal parking. Imo, the punishment should fit the damage to society...which in this case is actually none. The $50 fine and verbal reprimand is actually an attempt at a compromise with the ARA nuts.

Yes it is. It is one of several. Dozens of violent offenders have been interviewed/studied, and it has been found that more often than not, there has been a history of animal abuse.

There are countless quotations that differ from that premise, USA...here's only one:

"Cruelty has cursed the human family for countless ages. It is almost impossible for one to be cruel to animals and kind to humans. If children are permitted to be cruel to their pets and other animals, they easily learn to get the same pleasure from the misery of fellow humans. Such tendencies can easily lead to crime." ~Fred A. Mc Gran, 1895

^^This is true. It is also true that animal "abuse" is not a predictor or human abuse.

Please provide substantiation that it is more destructive than illegal parking and/or speeding.
